This is not Photoshopped.  It’s a mistake that showed up at 2 AM when the fog rolled up from the valley. …

There was a 60 watt porch light 150′ away.  No problem all night until the fog created a perfect scrim to see the shadow of the camera platform caused by the light.  You can actually see my shadow standing to the left of the platform.  I was standing there trying to figure out whether the fog was going to condense on the lens (it did). It was so dark, I couldn’t see the shadow until looking at the long exposure images the next day.  It ruined the shot after 5 hours of sleepless shooting, but its a cool image. Porch light is now off.
